We report the results of ac/dc magnetization study of the critical behavior in a weak ferromagnet BaIrO3. The critical temperature has been determined to be = 182.8 K by the ac susceptibility measurement. We have analyzed our dc magnetization data near with the help of the modified Arrott plot method. The critical exponents have been determined to be = 0.82±0.03, γ = 1.03±0.03, and δ = 2.20±0.01, which roughly obeys . Using these values of , , and γ, we find that each magnetization-field-temperature (M-H-T) behavior below and above obeys a scaling relation, following a single equation of state in which is uniquely related to where . These findings demonstrate that the ferromagnetic transition in BaIrO3 belongs to a new universality class of the second-order phase transition.
